This will be my fist time doing this and I read that I need to download all device drivers and put them on a cd/usb/hd before reinstalling.  I don't have any special devices like printers and whatnot, just what CP sent with the laptop.  I was wondering if I'd have to do anything regarding the audio, video, etc that came with the laptop or if I can boot up on the CD drive and delete everything before reinstalling?
I still have the PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility and Driver CD's.

That utility driver cd you have, it should as long as it came with the laptop have all the drivers needed...i would check first just load it up and see what it has.  But usually you just insert the OS cd/dvd, boot to it, delete your old partition (formatting) and create a new one to insatll .  once its insatlled, you use the driver cd to reload all your drivers for the computer itself..any other drivers for printers etc you would need to get later on or from other cds

So quick steps
1. Back up your data to external drives
2. insert win7 cd and boot to it
3. Delete old partiton
4. create a new one for either the full size or part of it if you want a C:\ and D:\
5. choose that new partiton to install
6. hit install (mine took about 10-15 mins to install)
7. once its up and running, insert the driver cd and load your drivers back on
